Club SongEdit

Panther Land (to the tune of the Richmond Football Club Song)

Oh we're from Panther Land
The Mighty football team from Panther Land
In any weather you will see us with a grin
Risking head and chin
We'll fight and fight until we drop
and then we'll fight again
Oh we're from Panther Land
We're never beaten till' the final sirens gone
Oh we're the Panthers of old
We're strong and we're bold
Oh we're from Panther
Red, white and black
Oh we're from Panther Land
